    Description

    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Grinch as Santa Claus Production Cel (MGM, 1966). "They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming! They're just waking up, I know just what they'll do. Their mouths will hang open a minute or two, then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry, 'Boo Hoo.' And that's the noise that I simply must hear!" These are the words the Grinch speaks as he runs to edge of the mountain cliff; he hears joy and singing instead, and the Grinch eyes will soon change from red to blue and his heart will grow. This image can be seen around the 20:14 mark. Here is a fantastic, original, 12 field, full-figure Grinch production cel, with a great 6" image of him in his Santa costume. The cel includes a Linda Jones seal, and has been hand-signed by the film's director, animation legend Chuck Jones. Matted with an opening size of 11" x 9", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 19" x 17. Frame is sold as-is. The cel is in Very Good condition.
